Comcast knows that now, more than ever, Internet access is a necessity. Employees need to connect to workplaces, students need to connect to online learning, and veterans need to connect to Veterans Affairs health services.

That's why if you sign up for Comcast's Internet Essentials program now, the first two months are free. 

"To help bridge the digital divide during this time of need, we’re providing special offers to the thousands of veterans who qualify for our Internet Essentials program, which is the nation’s largest and most comprehensive broadband adoption program for low-income Americans," a release from Comcast reads.

The Internet Essentials program is available to low-income individuals who participate in public assistance programs such as the National School Lunch Program, Housing Assistance, Medicaid, SNAP, SSI, and others. The service — which normally costs $9.95 per month — has no contracts, no credit checks, and no installation fees. 

Over one million veterans across the country are eligible, according to Comcast. The service can be canceled after the first two free months. 

Comcast is also increasing the speed of the program’s Internet service to 25 Mbps downstream and 3 Mbps upstream for all new and existing customers — at no cost to customers.
